    It makes perfect sense.
    For me, when working, it doesn’t just depend on the priority but also on the time when my mind works better. My effective schedule is waking up early and start working immediately before I get sucked into a world of procrastination and doing those common time wasters.
    I discovered that my mind works great when I just woke up and if it still haven’t been corrupted by social media accounts and youtube videos. I think, time management is different for each and every one of us. My tip is whatever works perfectly for you, slowly make it a habit, stick with it or try out something to make it more effective.
